Holistic Therapist - Melanie Postill

Melanie qualified in Physiotherapy in 1992 and has worked in the NHS and in private practices. Melanie began seeing the benefits of Cranio-Sacral Therapy (CST) whilst working at a private physio practice in North Yorkshire, this led to her studying with The Upledger Institute in 2003. She integrated CST into her physio practice and saw improvements in client's symptoms that would not have responded to her traditional physio techniques.


During her physio career, Melanie was fortunate to be able to study many post-graduate courses, one of which was " Acupuncture for the relief of pain". This led to an interest in Traditional Chinese Medicine and ultimately into studying Shiatsu with the Newcastle College. Melanie gained a professional certificate in Shiatsu in 2008.


Nowadays, Melanie enjoys working holistically with clients, practising either CST or Shiatsu on the background of her extensive physio knowledge.
